The evolution of the relationship between Cuba and the United States is much more complicated from the Cuban perspective than it is made to appear in mainstream media and political thinking. In this book, Arnold August highlights critical views from Cuba that are generally unfamiliar to non-Cubans.
August outlines and analyzes current interactions and the future perspectives between the two neighbours. Included with August’s careful analysis are interviews with five of Cuba’s leading intellectuals, providing readers with a unique look into today’s dynamic and complex relationship between these two countries.
An expert on Cuba, Arnold August offers a revealing view of the conflict between Washington and Havana and the foreign policy of the United States vis-à-vis the island.

Any open-minded discussion about the obviously asymmetrical relations between Cuba and the United States should start with this highly readable informative book. Based on deep research, including use of historical U.S. government documents and extensive field work inside Cuba, it should be acquired by libraries, students, and people about to travel to Cuba, journalists, government employees, and academics working in international affairs.
